The kick-off meting for the KOGET (Internal Migration and Integration in Kocaeli) Project was held on 10.04.2014 with the participation of the project partners.
The main aim of the project is to facilitate the integration and harmonization processes of internal migrants in Kocaeli which is one of the most industrialized and therefore the most migration-receiving cities in Turkey. Under the framework of the project a series of socio-cultural activities will be organized as well as the preparation of 'a map and report of internal migration in Kocaeli' by the experts from the University of Kocaeli.
At the end of the meeting, a dissemination session was held about the NIM (New Integration Methods) Project which is being implemented by the Governorship of Kocaeli. The aim is to create a synergy among the projects which are aimed to similar issues such as internal and external migration so that better and more sustainable results can be achieved.
